JAMMU: A number of activists of Dogra Front & Shiv Sena (DFSS), led by its President Ashok Gupta took out a protest rally in Satwari on Sunday against steep rise in prices of petrol and LPG. Riding Tanga and carrying LPG cylinders, the protestors raised slogans against the Government, demanding immediate revision in petrol prices.While addressing protestors, Ashok Gupta said that petrol price with additives has crossed Rs 100 per litre mark in different parts of country as oil marketing companies continue with their daily price-hike in wake of heated global oil market. Further, high rate of state taxes by various State Governments has deteriorated the condition, making common man to suffer.Gupta further said, “Use of Tanga shows that high prices of petrol and diesel has forced people to abandon their vehicles. The LPG cylinder price has been hiked by Rs 50 this month and in last 3 months by Rs 125, thereby hitting budget of a common man.”He further said that Central Government has imposed an excise duty of Rs 32, which further increases prices of petrol and diesel. Moreover, State Government have also imposed almost an equal amount of VAT on petrol and diesel, hiking the prices further, he said, urging Government to initiate necessary steps for keeping a check on such steep hike, so that common man may not suffer.Those who attended the protest included Abhishek, Fauji, Sham, Prem, Bantu, Rampal, Kalu and Naresh.
